Editorial Reviews

Review

Firstly, you've clearly done your research. I never felt I was in an Egypt informed by Hollywood and clichés -pyramids and mummies and curses. Instead you portray a vivid, ancient land, steeped in superstitious tradition, lavish royalty, with a diverse mix of peoples and cultures. You have a brilliant manner of writing flawed yet interesting characters that we invest in. 

Rachel Faulkner, Digital Project Editor, Harper Collins Publishers 
Chasing Pharaohs made the Harper Collins Authonomy Editor's Desk in December 2013
